charisma . The high-flow CPAP solution.

By developing charisma, Löwenstein Medical Innovation has risen to the challenge of making in-hospital ventilation for all types of CPAP therapies safer.

No matter if face masks, nasal masks, or helmets are used, charisma delivers the best result for the patient for all kinds of respiratory therapy modes. And of course - as in all Löwenstein Medical Innovation ventilation devices - operation is simple and straightforward to avoid operating errors.


Highflow CPAP
Nasal CPAP
Helmet ventilation

charisma stands for a new generation of clinical respiratory therapy devices, which were specifically developed for today's demands and are suited for all CPAP therapy modes.

Thanks to their ease of use, various respiratory therapy modes, integrated oxygen measurement without consumables, and adjustable alarm limits, these devices can be used in acute care, physiotherapy, and general nursing care alike.

Compensating leakages in CPAP therapy as they occur

It is a special challenge in CPAP therapy to compensate mask-related leakages. Even short-term pressure drops of just 0.2 to 0.4 seconds may lead to the collapse of alveolar areas. With its comprehensive dynamic leakage compensation of up to 200 liters per minute, charisma prevents drops of respiratory pressure below the lower inflection point and thus helps avoid hypoxemia induced by alveolar collapse.

Reducing complications after surgical interventions - charisma is suited for use in the recovery room already

Atelectasis resulting from general anesthesia frequently persists for the first postoperative days. The resulting postoperative restriction of pulmonary function depends on patient-specific risk factors (COPD, age, smoking, ASA status) and the length of surgery (> 3 hours). The intermittent use of mask CPAP for quick restoration of lung volumes is a decisive step to help minimize the risk of postoperative pneumonia and other pulmonary complications. hurrikan 200 is suited for use in the recovery room in the immediate postoperative phase.

Effective delivery of aerosol medications without trigger mechanisms

Nebulized drug delivery can be combined with the continuous flow of CPAP therapy for the patient's benefit. The combination of both methods can enhance intrapulmonary efficacy and thereby optimize the drug therapy. charisma makes it easy to nebulize medications and does not require any trigger mechanisms for nebulizer control.

Using therapy options with helmet CPAP

Mask-related complications occur with greater frequency the longer the patient is on CPAP therapy, which often leads to escalation procedures. Helmet CPAP therapy offers a patient-friendly alternative and can help avoid intubation and reduce lethality. Helmet CPAP therapy can also be used as a preventive approach for avoiding mask-related problems and allows for the safe application of higher PEEP levels. It is well accepted by patients as a supplementary therapy option, since helmet CPAP significantly reduces eye irritation and stomach bloating. To avoid any undesired CO2 rebreathing, charisma is equipped with a high-flow CPAP system with adjustable flush flow.

Ending weaning and securing weaning success - nasal CPAP

As a supplement to mask and helmet applications, nasal CPAP–with the corresponding positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) setting–represents an interesting therapy option. In contrast to CPAP therapy with low PEEP settings, nasal CPAP with settings of 9-10 cm H2O lead to a rise in the oxygenation index without hemodynamic effects. The literature documents reduced stays in intensive care and clinical settings as a consequence. In addition, nasal CPAP allows for prolonged application as part of the weaning process and for postoperative respiratory therapy. charisma delivers CPAP in three different modes with varying devices.

Application areas of the hurrikan 200 clinical high-flow CPAP device:
